Cute Snowman Drawing

A cute snowman drawing doesn’t have to be small and very flat looking. In fact, with just a little help, it can fill your page look round and dimensional look.

Get your students off to a quick start by tracing an old CD to get a nice round circle. It happens to be the perfect size for your average sheet of drawing paper. How can you draw a cute smiling face if you don’t have enough room for it, right?

After the head and body are drawn, add the snowman accessories with lots of curves and ovals as shown in my tutorial. Doing so will make the top hat look like a tube and the scarf look like something that is wrapped around his body, and not just stuck in front.

If those dimensional drawing tips came easy to you, try adding some shadows on the sides and edges. You might be surprised just how round your snowman will become.
